Quotes from

Sam 'Pa' Burton: [at Neddy Burton's funeral] One thing from the bible she liked. "And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living." To me, Neddy, you were the mother of all living. You were life itself. God... just one thing... take care of this woman. Amen.


One Indian: Kiowa Pacer. Is it true, earth, round like ball, white man live on all sides?
Pacer Burton: That is true.
Another Indian: Tell me, why men on bottom not fall off?
Pacer Burton: I've never been there. Maybe they do.
[they all laugh]


Pacer Burton: All Ma and me ever got from Whites is mean looks and don't get uppish with us.
Roslyn Pierce: Oh, that's not true.
Pacer Burton: You were the worst. You made me feel it the worst. When I was little I liked you a lot. You were the only girl I ever liked a whole lot. But ever since you've been old enough to know, you never looked at me once without saying something in the back of your head. "He's Kiowa. Clint's all right, but watch out for Pacer."
